Rated PG. Contains graphic scenes of class conflict and superhuman self-doubt.
Union Dues: Iron Bars and the Glass Jaw
By Jeffrey R. DeRego
“You super folks must think we’re pretty damn foolish, especially us in the law enforcement community.”
Look at him leaning back with his feet up on the desk. Did he just walk out of Cool Hand Luke? Sheesh, you’d think a sheriff would want to be more dignified. “No sir. You and your brethren are integral to the fabric of society. We of The Union are grateful for your hard work and courage.” I can rattle that sort of crap off all day long.
